As a child Lorraine always read, wrote and dreamt of becoming a published author but for a mixed-race kid growing up on a housing estate in Essex that sometimes felt like an impossibility.
Now a successful published author, Lorraine is also co-founder of #ukmgchat, which enables writers, agents, editors and publishers of middle grade fiction to share their experience and expertise. She’s also a member of Golden Egg Academy and SCBWI, (and winner of the Crystal Kite 2018 for UK & Ireland) and is passionate about encouraging young dreamers to believe in themselves.
Lorraine lives in Essex with her family.
